I may or may not have mentioned the Sidecar in a recent post; can’t recall. But anyways, if I did, your interest in it would be justifiably lukewarm compared to the raging inferno in your loinage-region after reading cocktail wizard and Imbibe! author David Wondrich describe one.
“The Sidecar is often singled out as the only good cocktail to come out of the long national nightmare that was Prohibition. And when you’re sipping one, you almost think it was all worth it. The luminous, golden-straw color, the perfectly controlled sweetness, the jazzy high notes of the citrus against the steady bass of the brandy. This is a drink whose suavité is beyond question—it’s the Warren Beatty of modern mixology.”
